THX recently sat down with Runco to discuss their Q-750 Projector that recently won the Sound and Vision 2010 Editor’s Choice Award. This Q & A session reveals some of the challenges and opportunities Runco came up against during product development and what it means to be THX Certified.

Q: How long has Runco been developing state-of-the-art home theater products?

A: Runco has been developing premium home video products since the 1970s, and was the world’s first company to offer a THX Certified video product with the introduction of the Runco LJR II Laser Disc Player in 1994. At the time, the LJR II was a breakthrough home video product. It brought the magic of George Lucas’s Star Wars and other great Laser Discs to life, inspiring a generation of home theater fans.

Living Room 3D

stereographoscopeSo, just when we think we have embarked on a new era, a world with 3D entertainment in the home, we are reminded that everything new is old. This parlor stereographoscope (say THAT 3 times fast!) was one of the first living room 3D displays. Put your stereo pair photography on the piano-music-style stand and viola!

This brief article, from AAA's Via Magazine, claims that hundreds of millions of 3D photographs were in circulation. We long for the day that we can say the same about 3D Blu-Rays and broadcasts so that homeowners could enjoy them on their 3Dimension™ 3D projector!

This and other artifacts are on display at the 3D Center of Art and Photography in Portland, Oregon, just a few miles from our offices here at Runco.
